Torino agree Verdi deal, but...

Torino have agreed a deal to sign Napoli forward Simone Verdi, but they may have to wait until the Partenopei bring in a replacement.

According to Corriere dello Sport, a phone call between the two Presidents yielded an agreement between their respective clubs.

The newspaper writes Toro will pay €10m to take Verdi on a season-long loan, which includes 50 percent of any resale in the next two years or a €10m obligation to buy.

However, it is warned Napoli do not want to part with the 27-year-old until they land one of Hirving Lozano and James Rodriguez.

As it stands, a deal for Lozano is being held up by image rights, while Real Madrid prefer to shift James on a permanent basis.
